    @TechnoHippy I'm kind of curious as to just what she did to escalate the incident to that level. I used to work in the aviation field (until around 5 years ago) and I know the rough outline of the escalation process they use for security incidents. Actually getting interceptors scrambled takes some doing - possibly trying to force the cockpit door to the point where the crew were seriously worried?

    She was apparently trying to open the fuselage doors, it doesn't mention the cockpit. However if she had managed to open the doors the plane would have depressurized and need to perform an emergency landing. In which case the fighters could have been there to provide eyes on guidance, or to make sure this wasn't all a fake to change the course of the plane to a target.

    She screamed something like 'youre all going to die, I'm going to kill you all' and tried to open the outside door.

    I assume that's every box ticked other than 'is brown?' in the potential terror event handbook.

    There’s a video on another site where it sounds like she was pissed and was talking about killing herself. The cockpit was also open to passengers by the looks of things and it speaks oh her “storming” it and trying to open the external door.

    It amazes, well actually it doesn't, how the media reports on someone trying to open an exterior plane door but don't mention that it's impossible because the cabin is pressurized.

    Breaking: Photoshopping flat cap on parrot not breach of code, says IPSO

    https://www.pressgazette.co.uk/photoshopping-flat-cap-on-parrot-not-breach-of-code-says-ipso/

    The Daily Star did not breach accuracy guidelines by photoshopping a flat cap onto a parrot, a press regulator has ruled.

    Parrot re-homing charity All Star Parrots complained to the Independent Press Standards Organisation about an article in the Daily Star published under the headline “Beaky Blinders” on 28 February this year.

    The charity added that the Daily Star had “compared the parrot to a psychotic television character” by putting a flat cap on it.

    The charity argued that the joking nod toward the BBC drama Peaky Blinders was “not a responsible way to portray the parrot” and said the publication did not have its permission to add the flat cap to its image.


    Macaw to follow.
